/ recommend me a bouldering mat
I would like to boulder outdoors and I am looking to purchase a bouldering mat.
What do people recommend?
At Rock On today the guy suggested DMM Highball.
Is this any good?
one that you dont miss, and rupture your achilles tendon!!!
The DMM highball is a superior mat. If you're just getting one buy a massive one! Check out a company called Snap and Moon also make excellent matts
Do you mean a large one that is brightly coloured?
I have heard of those companies!
I know Urban Rock have the DMM High Ball the cheapest at £145.
I have the Metolius Bailout crash pad. I would recommend it to anyone. Good quality and durable. I have had quite a few falls on it from fairly highball problems without feeling a thing.
Pretty similar dimensions to the highball yet over a kilo lighter and can be found alot cheaper:
Pretty good deal if you ask me.
That is a great deal!
Super cool as beanz
Go for it. You wont find a better deal than that. The money you save on buying that over the highball will get you a train fare somewhere to use it! :)
I get 1/3 off intercity rail travel anyway with a disabled persons railcard!
I bought mine on impulse a couple of years ago for £150 from V12 in Llanberis. So this deal is a no-brainer really.
Alpkit have great value quality mats. I have a Mujo which squeezes in the boot of a corsa and is pretty thick- a bit like me really.
are about the best deal you are likely to find.
My club has 5 of the climb-x mats and one of the pod-sacs ones.
They seem to work very well.
a mate of mine has that mat. it was great for font as it has the foot wipe thing in the middle to get rid of sand and it had a handle on the bottom rather than the side, which made it easy to move about. Looks like a great deal.
Thank you everybody for you advice and assistance.
